Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition - it can be successfully treated with a range of therapies but it is currently incurable. In 2018 around 145,000 people in the UK alone are living with Parkinson’s (1 person in every 350). This is expected to increase by 18% by the year 2025 and is set to almost double by 2065.
